What is kiva?
"We are a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world.We are a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty.

Each loan is a loan which goes 100% to the microfinance institution, with likely 99% repaid to you. Donations can also be made to kiva to support their administration costs.
Help others with a hand up, not a hand out.
